Starting the New Year in a cool way - Launching shreeni.info

Last night, I just went around to godaddy.com and realized that domain names in the .info extensions were selling at $0.99 each and I ended up buying a couple of them - shreeni.info (for me) and bharadwaj.info (for my father). Once that was done, I wanted to get it them to point to our blogs and for our emails to work. The method as suggested on blogger's own help page doesn't work as well as it should. Well, it would but that would only allow me to redirect a subdomain - say blog.shreeni.info or www.shreeni.ino, but I wanted to redirect shreeni.info to my blogspot page. It needs a little help from this blog which adds the small instruction of forwarding which was missing in bloggers help page.

Now, all that is done. I do have the two domains up and working and I have their email accesses also working. So, I feel having achieved something good on New Year's day.
